Williston’s city council will have new look in the spring.
The qualifying period ended at noon on Friday, Jan.18, and brought with it a major surprise. Longtime councilman James "Jake" Cason will not compete to retain his Group E seat.
Candidates for that position are Lindsey Hager and Brooks Holloway, former city manager.
The Group D seat being vacated by Jerry Robinson, who is running for county commissioner, will go by default to Michael Shoemaker, a relative newcomer to the community. Shoemaker is the only candidate for the seat.
